We accept patients with various conditions and have made extensive clinical achievements

We provide medical care for a wide range of pulmonary and pleural diseases including lung cancer, bronchial asthma, pneumonia, and respiratory failure.

Medical Care System

With 13 full-time doctors (academic personnel), 6 doctors and 18 medical staff (physicians), we provide medical care in the outpatient clinic every day in three examination rooms (one room in the outpatient clinic for new patients and two rooms for specialized respiratory outpatient clinic). Number of beds: 41. Respiratory endoscopy (bronchoscopy): twice a week.

Target Diseases

Thoracic malignant tumor (e.g. lung cancer, pleural mesothelioma), bronchial asthma, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD), diffuse pulmonary disease (e.g. interstitial pneumonia, sarcoidosis), pulmonary infection (e.g. pneumonia, pulmonary tuberculosis, pulmonary mycosis), acute and chronic respiratory failure, etc.

Strong Fields

Multimodality therapy for lung cancer and malignant pleural mesothelioma (comprehensive treatment in cooperation with Thoracic Surgery, Radiology, and the Department of Clinical Oncology and Chemotherapy), endoscopic diagnosis of the respiratory system, diagnosis and treatment of diffuse pulmonary disease, treatment of bronchial asthma, treatment of chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD), and diagnosis and treatment of pulmonary infection.

Clinical Results

Advanced Medicine and Research

Clinical trials focusing on cancer genome medicine and immunotherapy, clinical trials for interstitial lung disease and pulmonary infections, diagnosis of and pathological research on various respiratory diseases using inhalation-induced sputum, endoscopic ultrasound under bronchoscopy, and argon plasma coagulation for endotracheal malignant tumors.
